They addressed the needs of people like me who want to change the input
sources. I have to change from mic to front mic to record anything at
all or use voice chat and I am not at all twiddle happy in these things.
If it works by default, I wouldn't change a thing. Unfortunately it
doesn't. While I personally can fall back to alsamixer, it is going to
be more trouble for other users.

There is also a smaller number of users for whom, sound does not work at
all until they fiddle with one of the volume control settings in alsamixer.

Fortunately, these are bugs or enhancements requests taken into
consideration by PulseAudio folks and should be fixed by Fedora 12
timeframe.
